Golden Pears--Original Still Life Oil Painting

When the weather gets cooler, I start painting more still life work. Today's painting is an 8x10 on a gessoed hardboard panel. It was created with a mixture of both transparent and opaque oil color and was inspired by three Bosc pears on a linen cloth. The contrast between the golden skin and the white of the cloth attracted my attention. I worked with a loose brush stroke and enjoyed the creation of this painting. It has joined some of my other still life oil paintings at Impressions Gallery and can be purchased for $125.00 plus $12.50 for shipping to US addresses. If you are interested in small format paintings, please visit Small Impressions Gallery for work that is 8x10 inches or smaller.
